Multiyear Software Purchases

1.       Prepare a requisition for the purchase of software for the full amount of all years included in contract.

2.       This purchase will require IT approval and require the appropriate documentation for authorization.

3.       An account code is required. However, the Procurement Services department will determine final appropriate account code.

4.       The Purchase Order will be initially issued for the entire cost for all years of service. Procurement Services will send this PO to the vendor and then immediately reduce the encumbrance on the PO to reflect the amount needed for the remainder of the fiscal year (whether it be an annual or monthly amount depending on the contract). Each year in July, Procurement Services adds enough funds to the PO to cover the next fiscal year.
